Reggie Miller Game 1 1995 playoffs versus the Knicks. 8 points in 11 seconds, choke sign to Spike Lee, all in the Garden. That was going "Zonal".
Your first pick in last Friday's mock draft looked really good Saturday. The great players play big in the biggest games. Johnny Football showed up big time. Next coach of the Vols - Gruden -- no, he'll coach in the NFL for more money and less headaches (no recruiting), Stoops -- why leave Oklahoma, more money? - no, coaching in the SEC? - top of the Big 12 or middle of the SEC where's the improvement, Strong -- Papa John's versus Pilot money. He'll stay put and come out the big winner. The next coach will have to come out of the "fast risers" or the pool of coordinators (other than Sal).
Petrino at a school I support -- no thanks.
But if Kentucky is willing to hire the only coach who has had two final four appearances vacated for the basketball job, what makes you think that they would even think to discuss the moral transgressions surrounding a guy who would add instant excitement to a struggling football program. Petrino rolls into Lexington next season with a new Harley and a big contract. Mrs Petrino files for half.
Excellent choices on the scary movie Rushmore, Jaws the book was actually scarier than the movie. As far as sports injuries, anytime a horse breaks down in a big race pains me. They know they are hurt and we all know how it ends.
Congrats on two great years. I'm afraid the USCe / UT game could turn ugly if Bray channels his inner Ryan Leaf and has mental cramping.
Alabama 35 -- Tennessee 10
Talent is more importatnt, lack of confidence can be overcome. Talent comes from the guy upstairs (not the editor), it is brought out by work ethic and coaching. Bronze dude looks like a evil doer from some B-grade movie.
Let me throw Kareem in for his bit part in Airplane. Not worthy of being on Rushmore, but maybe a shout out in the visitor's center.
On to the Yankees -- love them, grew up watching them before King George bought them so I remember the dark days. Baseball is like college football, those that have the money get the best players. Do you think if Alabama or The Ohio State skimped on the weight room or locker rooms, kids would go elsewhere - you bet they would. Colleges spend on the surroundings to attract talent, the Yankees just pay the talent.
A moment of silence for Mongo - please.
Great column today (as usual)
five more underrated comedies:
1) Spaceballs - Bill Pullman goes from Lone Starr to President in Independence Day
2) Dragnet -- Hanks and Ackroyd
3) Spies Like Us -- The scene when they think they are going to die and everyone "hooks up"
4) 1941 -- Spielberg does comedy, some guy named Belushi
5) Gung Ho -- So PC incorrect. George Wendt, Michael Keaton, Ron Howard directing
Relieved to see the real refs getting back on the field. I would wager that we get to see the "Hoc" call tonight's game.
